The other ride is a simulator called "Star Wars: Ride of Resistance". It will put riders in control of the Millennium Falcon. As part of this presentation, came the exciting reveal of the official names of the two attractions coming to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, including a preview of both rides.

Both of these new experiences, paired with the land's interactive components and integration with the Play Disney Parks app, will invite guests to become galactic travelers and live their own Star Wars stories in a galaxy far, far away. There are also looks at the alien world of Batuu and the Black Spire trading outpost, which together make up the bulk of the themed Star Wars area.

"Star Wars" fans will soon be able to pilot the Millennium Falcon and face off against Kylo Ren in battle.

Also unveiled Saturday was Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, an attraction that will pit guests in the middle of a battle between Leia Organa's Resistance and the dark First Order. You can hear some of his Galaxy's Edge music here.

It's not clear from the video how the attraction actually works, but early chatter from Disney has suggested there's a role-playing element to the guest experience at Galaxy's Edge.

The wait won't be much longer. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens at Disneyland next summer, and at Walt Disney World's Disney's Hollywood Studios the following fall.
